What’s This Creative Content Project All About?

There has never been a better time to be an independent creator looking to self-publish and self-distribute your work. Tools for creation are more powerful and less expensive, platforms for distribution are emerging and a number of early pioneers are showing success in forging ahead without traditional publishers and distributors.

Insight, Inspiration and Vision from Edward Tufte

“The world is much more interesting than any one discipline.” Edward Tufte might just be my new hero.

In Praise of Irrationality, In Praise of Creatives

I’m in the midst of taking two online courses, Intro to Finance and Intro to Statistics and appreciate the tools and insights both disciplines bring to the decision making process.
